Have you ever noticed that reading a book on the toilet takes forever? Wouldn’t it be nice to have stories suited to your specific potty needs? This collection of short stories ranges from 50 words to more than 50 pages, separated in categories labeled to fit your bathroom needs: NUMBER ONE, NUMBER TWO, and FARFROMPOOPIN. The idea is to give you, the reader, a great deal of material to read, tailored and categorized to the needs of your intestines and bladder. So go ahead, get comfortable, pull out your Squatty Potty® and enjoy some fantasy, science fiction, horror, adventure, and humor from the comfort of your own throne…the john…the latrine…your office…the bathroom, whatever you want to call it. Just be sure to wash your hands once you’re done.
What an ingenious concept. I really enjoy the fact that this is a solid collection, that gives readers a choice of what kind of story they want to read. They are quick and all quite different.
Jaimie Engle does a great job of writing characters who seem real and relatable without making them have a barrage of issues to deal with.
I felt myself loving each of these short stories for different reasons. They are not even remotely similar, but you can tell they have been written by the same author.
The humor was such a great addition. It made for a light hearted feel to even the darker of the installments.
